One man is in custody after a daring carjacking attempt at a gas station that led to a police chase beginning in downtown Chicago, authorities said Wednesday.
Around 6:50 p.m., officers responded to a “holding the offender” call in the 1200 block of S. Wabash in the city’s South Loop neighborhood, according to police. A man was being held by a security guard at a gas station after an attempted car theft at what many patrons said is a popular BP.
Another vehicle sped away, resulting in a crash before continuing to flee the scene, officials said.
Just crazy. This is one of the most highly trafficked areas of the Sloop and this happened during a busy time of the day.
All we can say is wow and hopefully they find the other person/people.
